Mission: As one of the leading adventure and outdoor retailers in Canada, working for Atmosphere is not like working for any other company. Why? Because we carry the top brands, employ expert team members, provide the best customer service, and we have a lot of fun.
I have been working at Atmosphere full-time
Lots of like minded people in the company, family feel for a large corporation, great customers, good benefits, flexible schedules
Retail landscape is super competitive and always changing making the job a constant challenge, wages are always tight and expectations are high
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Atmosphere (West Vancouver, BC) in October-2016.
On the first working day after I applied online, I received an email with sort of a personality test. There were about 60 questions that needed to be answered. It took me around 15 minutes to complete it. After I submitted the personality test, they called on the same day. I've been interviewed by a really nice and friendly lady, who actually helped me to relax a lot. She asked about my outdoor experience, about my previous jobs, my availability... Then she told me that she'll ask some situational questions, which took us another 15 minutes. The questions were very typical: why would you like to work for us, tell me 3 things that will make you a good Atmosphere candidate, stuff like that. She told me that I did really well and she's confident I'd get the job. She scheduled an in store interview for me in 10 days.
The manager and the interview were so relaxing and great. We talked about my immigration experience, about my country, about Canada, but most of all - about mountaineering. I enjoyed that, because I have a lot of mountaineering experience, so we explored every aspect of it. He asked only one work related question - how would I act if a costumer told me that they wanted to try hiking for the first time? He told me right away that I got the job.
All in all, it was a great, informal, relaxing experience.
